EMTA Holdings, an energy conservation chemical company, has announced that its flagship product, XenTx Extreme Engine Treatment, is being used successfully by Mesilla Valley Transportation of Las Cruces, N.M., and El Paso, Texas. First-quarter results for MVT show fuel economy increased 5.1 percent, which will provide a monthly savings of about $160,000 for the company’s fleet.
“We have installed XenTx Engine Treatment in approximately 480 of our trucks and still have some 500-plus to go,” says Ernie Simmons, MVT’s director of maintenance. “Some units have run enough miles that they have been treated a second time. We began using XenTx expecting to lower our fuel cost just under $2 million per year.”
XenTx products feature breakthrough technology proven to reduce overall friction and mechanical wear, resulting in greater fuel economy, according to EMTA. XenTx is available at most major retailers, including Wal-Mart, Kmart, AutoZone, Pep Boys, Target and Fred Meyer.
“We are extremely pleased to have MVT as our latest fleet customer,” says Edmond L. Lonergan, chief executive officer and president of Scottsdale, Ariz.-based EMTA. “With thousands of tractor-trailers on the roads in the U.S., we believe that there is a significant opportunity for XenTx to make an impact on the trucking industry. We have several other companies testing XenTx currently and believe that they will have similar results as those achieved by MVT.”
